Indy Star – Hypnosis Helped Me Drop Fast Food Like a Bad Habit!

Indy Star – Hypnosis Helped Me Drop Fast Food Like a Bad Habit!

The Adventuress: Hypnosis helped me drop fast food like a bad habit! Leslie Bailey / January 29, 2016 (Photo: Michelle Pemberton / The Star) It all started one late-summer day in Michigan with an issue of Good Housekeeping. I was lounging in my parents’ kitchen flipping through the pages when I came across an interview with the actress Olivia Munn. Expecting nothing but skin care tips for a “girl next door” look, I was pleasantly surprised to find an article about her near-death experience in a plane crash as well as her struggles with OCD and trichotillomania (a hair-pulling condition associated with obsessive-compulsive disorder). In the interview, Munn mentioned seeing a hypnotist as part of her therapy for the disorders. As a bonus, he also hypnotized her to start working out. “I’m not exaggerating: That was on a Friday, and by Monday I was working out every day at 6 a.m. If I missed a session, I’d double up and do it the next day. Now I feel so much stronger,” she told the magazine. Having been successfully hypnotized once before on a cruise ship (I swear to you, it worked) and not exactly a consistent exerciser myself, I decided to make an appointment with Tim Shurr of Indy Hypnosis to see if he could help. Shurr is a life coach, speaker, and consultant who has been practicing hypnosis for 27 years. After graduating from Indiana University with a degree in psychology, Shurr has spent the past 21 years in the coaching business. During our first session it became apparent that my problem getting to the gym wasn’t my...
“When Do I Get To Be Happy?”

“When Do I Get To Be Happy?”

LIFE. WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT? When I was a kid, life was about having fun and figuring out how to avoid going to bed. When I was a teen, it was about fitting in and trying to be accepted. When I was in my twenties, it was about figuring out what to do with my life. When I was in my thirties, it was about making money and collecting stuff. When I was in my forties, it was about family, building wealth, and gaining respect. I’m 45 years old now. Half way there, if I make it to 90. I woke up with two thoughts. “What will the rest of my forties be about?” and “Do I have a say in the matter?” Lao Tzu once wrote in the Tao Te Ching that we go through stages in life. For men, in the “morning” of our lives it’s about making money and earning respect. Yet, in the “afternoon” of life, the priorities for men shift to spirituality and family. It’s a completely different set of values that perhaps come from having greater perspective and wisdom regarding what really matters in life. For women it’s different. In the “morning” of life, it’s about family, connection, and fitting in. Being a good daughter, wife and/or mother. Yet, in the “afternoon” of life, it shifts to personal growth and self-improvement. This, to, is a complete paradigm shift. Women have traditionally been taught to be others-focused, which inherently causes many to lose their sense of self. These are generalizations and values have slightly shifted in the 21st century. Yet, there is a lot of truth...
